MTA Arts for Transit in Sept. 2011 unveiled “Union Square in Motion,” a temporary interactive art installation in which the movement of passersby animates a digital visual display depicting nine sets of abstract and organic-themed images created by nine student artists. The display is a digital zoetrope, a series of still images that differ from one another in slight ways and create the appearance of animation when viewed in succession. The artwork’s creators describe it as the world’s largest digital linear zoetrope. More: bit.ly/rfb22z Photo by Metropolitan Transportation Authority / Rob Wilson.
